One of the most respected families of hard drives
in the world is without a doubt the Seagate Barracuda. And if any one of you still doubts it, get ready to hear this: Seagate has just introduced the Barracuda XT, the fastest desktop hard drive in the world and first to feature the Serial ATA 6Gb/s interface. This is especially essential for gamers and video slash photo editing professionals who need very fast speeds but cannot afford going for a professional SSD.
"Capacity and performance remain the defining attributes of hard drives for PC gamers, digital multimedia content developers and many other customers requiring high-end systems at home and in the office," said Dave Mosley, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing at Seagate. "Seagate is meeting these requirements with the first 7200RPM desktop hard drive to combine 2TB of storage capacity with the fastest Serial ATA interface to date."
7.200 rotations per minute, four platters
with an areal density of 368 Gb per square inch, up to 6Gb per second burst speeds and backward compatibility with older technologies makes the Barracuda XT easy to use, easy to integrate and very hard to outclass. If you want even more, Seagate is prepared to offer in the form of the hard drive's 64MB cache that features optimized burst performance and transfer speeds.
I will leave you with Dr. Alan J. Armstrong, vice president of Marketing, Business Storage Group at Marvell: “Marvell is pleased to be announcing the industry's first commercially available SATA 6Gb/s solution and working with Seagate to introduce this technology […] Marvell has been working with a broad group of partners and customers to bring this solution to market. As early adopters of Marvell's SATA 6Gb/s technology, both ASUS and GIGABYTE offer motherboards to complement SATA 6Gb/s hard drives.” We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
